The Corn Lab is moving to ETH Zurich

Not your typical news post! The Corn Lab will be moving to the ETH in Zurich, Switzerland. Jacob is accepting a position as a full professor in the Institute for Molecular Health Sciences. The IGI and UC Berkeley MCB have been wonderful places to do research and work to make an impact on genetic disease. It’s hard to believe that it’s only been 4 years since Jacob moved from Genentech to help start up IGI. And reflecting back, it’s wild to see how much IGI has grown! What a great time!

We’ll be fully moved in October of 2018. The main thrust of my research program won’t change, so get in touch if you’re interested in a Ph.D. or postdoc in working on gene editing, DNA repair, hematopoietic stem cell biology, or organelle autophagy. I’m looking forward to new friends and colleagues, and to having current friends and colleagues come visit the Alps!
